Racine Harbor Park and Lakefront
This 16-acre lakefront park includes an overlook structure with an elevated deck that provides a great view of the water. The spring and fall migrations are the best times to bird here, but Snowy Owls have been seen in winter and large numbers of gulls and terns can be seen all summer. The woods along the southern lakefront hold Carolina Wrens and Red-shouldered Hawks. Traveling the roads north and south of this city park will take you to different habitats that attract a nice variety of birds.
Directions: Begin at 16th Street and South Main Street, following Main Street north and south along the harbor and lakefront area.
